    My point is more that your average user (one who's not on the playgrounds on the bad side of the Internet) has virtually no chance of running into a virus with a Mac.
    I do agree it's a lot safer for Mac users as compared to Windows users (even though Microsoft has cleaned up a lot of the "usability first, security later" decisions that lead to port 139 exploits, the Blaster worm, and other drive-by attacks over the years), and staying away from Russian websites definitely helps.

    Stay tuned. I know people who think this year is the year of Linux on the desktop! (So was 2011, and 2010, and 2009, and 1998, and... )

    I did a dual boot XP/ubuntu config for a while a couple years ago, but it just didn't do anything for me. I'm considering a new build this spring/summer, and maybe I'll run Linux on my old box just to play with it for a while. (that's what she said)

    PC's will do the job for you. Just like flying coach will get you from Point A to Point B. But it's just so much easier and nicer to have a private jet to get you from Point A to Point B.
    And I thought you weren't a religious person, when you clearly worship at the Apple Chappel.

    I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of adversity, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.I wont give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, and showed up for all wounded children.

    I suggest you look at VMWare player. I run Windows XP, Unbuntu and a couple of other Linux flavors as Virtual OS's in VMWare Player. No dual boot and it runs seamlessly on my Win 7 machine. I just wish I had time for the projects I installed them for.
    Mayans: Sorry about 2012! Better luck next time!

    You guys just need to stop clicking on the enlargement ads. They're not legit.

    I was wondering who would take that set-up.

    There is a reason that there are now iMacs and other Apple products in schools now. My kids have been using iMacs in school for 7 years. I have one at home for them to do their schoolwork, and for security. We also have 3 iPod Touch's and an iPad 2. Never had any issues syncing them up at all. Even the iCal program on the iMac syncs with Google seamlessly so I can update our calendars on one machine, and distribute it to everyone. We also have a netbook that I put Ubuntu on for the kids, and no issues.

    Now the laptop I am writing on, a Windows 7 based laptop, has crashed 3 times, and I have lost schoolwork. I am currently saving up for a mac laptop, for no other reason than I am tired of IBM PCs crashing, constantly needing to load updates, and the security issues involved with running Windows on my laptop. Yeah, they are more expensive, just like buying a BMW instead of a Ford. But, the maintenance is easier, the security is better, and the ease of synchronization is so much better that it is hard to keep buying Windows based computers.

    Just my
